Finding your way

the days are long
but life is short
got your priorities together
just need to sift and sort

its not always easy
to get through the day
just when u think you cant
you will find a way

life is full of strife
it may not always be fair
when your load is heavy
and no one wants to share

you continue to push on
not even knowing why
hoping tommorrow will be better
worth the tears you have cried

you have tried and tried
and still give it your all
gave it your best 
and yet its still you that will fall

sometimes you need a hand
or just a better card
to get you through the days
when things get hard

sometimes its hard to find the strength
looking for an easy way out
you carry on knowing
there is no easy route

you do what you have to do
crying inside day after day
the world sees you standing strong
not knowing you feel this way

you would do anything you could
at the drop of a dime
trying to please the world
one at a time

just dont forget to take care of you
dont let the weight become to much
dont forget your friends
when youre in need of a crutch

there will always be someone
you dont have to do it alone
just reach out for a hand
let your feelings be known

its not always easy
to get through the day
just when u think you cant
you will find your way

M.W. Patrick
